Esta Media Network News

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Arab League Wednesday strongly denounced the renewed Iranian bombing of the Kurdistan Region, raining fire on the Kurdish opposition bases.

The Iraqi News Agency (INA) cited the spokesman for the League, Jamal Rushdi, as saying “We condemn the renewed Iranian bombing of several areas in the Kurdistan region, which resulted in a number of martyrs and wounded.”

Moreover, Rushdi called the continuation of the Iranian attack “unacceptable” that breach Iraqi sovereignty.

“The continuation of the attack indicates a persistent lack of respect for international law and the principles of good neighborliness,” the spokesman said.

Rushdi highlighted despite the violation of Iraq’s sovereignty, the attacks harm the security and stability of the region.

“This Iranian act is not only a blatant encroachment on Iraq’s sovereignty and lands but also destabilizes the security and stability of the entire region,” the spokesman added.

“Iranian attacks undermine efforts to build confidence and reduce tensions in the region.”

In the meantime, Rushdi has explicitly blamed the Iranian authorities for adopting a diversion policy to avoid the “internal crisis”.

“Tehran seeks to blame others and hold them responsible for its internal crises, which is unacceptable.”

Moreover, Rushdi renewed the Arab League’s support for all measures taken by the Iraqi government in order to preserve Iraq’s sovereignty and to address all regional violations targeting its security and stability.

In the morning hours of Monday, Iranian drones and missiles once again targeted Kurdish opposition bases in the Region, with the latest reports saying at least two were killed and ten others wounded.

Semi-official Iran’s Fars News agency said the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had been behind the attack, which it said targeted “terrorist groups”.

Iran has repeatedly attacked Kurdish opposition bases, blaming the opposition militants for inciting the ongoing unrest which has gripped the country since the death of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini on September 16.
